FWIW, Germany HAS to import a

FWIW, Germany HAS to import a large amount of resources to make up for mother nature screwing that particular geographic location....

... Which is why Germany, in particular, has always gone to war very quickly whenever the citizens have caught a case of "patriot fever", and embarked on "economic independence".

They even have a special word with direct english translation for the idea of conquering enough land to keep everyone from staving, "lebensraum". English speaking countries have never faced starvation due to "patriotism", so there is no english word with the same meaning.
